The first reviews seem to go back to 2009 suggesting this is quite an old machine, about 8-9 years old.

The Delonghi ones with the Latte Crema system are probably better.

Cafetiere + quality ground coffee... Less than 10p a cup I imagine. Sometimes I think we're all a bit brainwashed into think £350 is a deal just because it's a little cheaper than it used to be. It's a steal, but not for us. It's just coffee! Now that my rant is over I'm off to make my brew

Cafetiere is not really the same thing though.
Why buy a car when you can have a moped for less.

Got one of them myself just earlier model. Only issue is the end but to heat up the milk keeps falling off and you have to hold it really tight during the steam prices and burn your fingers if you unlucky. Wouldn’t recommend.

It may not be the same but if you spent the same amount of money that this machine costs on a grinder, you would have excellent coffee for the rest of your life. Far better coffee than ANY bean to cup machine can currently produce.

I don't think there's much in it. Looking at the videos for this Krups one, they both produce that airy foam rather than anything approaching microfoam from a manual machine.

Your opinion, and If I say so, not a very well reasoned one either. If it is what you like, fine, and while Cafetieres do produce much more drinkable coffee than other non-machine methods - it really isn't anything vaguely similar to espresso. It's all beer, but cheap cans of lager are closer to Guinness than the differences we are talking about the two coffee types here.

Yes in general better beans produce better coffee, but that is true with espresso machines too - and to be honest I LIKE the hit and taste of some Robusta beans in espresso, so I don't always go for beans which are ALL arabica types.
I am loathe to spend the money on a Bean to cup machine too and I am a dab hand with a non-automatic machine as I like to tinker and put effort into getting good results so I buy whatever manual machine is a great offer whenever my current machine is getting older, ready for when it conks out, as unfortunately they don't last at the level of use I put them through - last buy was Delonghi Scultura for 70 quid (Dec 2016)

It's not opinion I'm afraid, it's fact. Just because it doesn't tally with your own thoughts, doesn't make it any less true. I've been a barista for over 10 years. I'm not debating espresso vs cafetiere. The method in which you make coffee is one of the least important things, the grinder and coffee bean itself being the most important. So my reasoning is just fine thanks.

That isn't an easy question unfortunately.

Bean to cup machines are easy to use, you don't need to learn the skills of a barista, however you won't get coffee as nice either, so that I'm afraid is down to your personal choice.

One thing you do need to consider is what happens when you get outside that 2 year warranty, these machines are mechanical, and use pretty high pressures to extract the coffee, they do break down - often frequently. How much will it cost to ship the machine to the repairer (and back again) what are the likely costs and how long will it take?

Alas many of the internal parts are plastic and wear quickly, on the flip side if you're currently spending £3 a day on coffee from a shop it will quickly pay for itself !

You do realise that management or even area managers still chip in when needed? Just because I do Barista work does not mean I am exclusively a Barista. Not that any of this even matters because you’re just bitter that I am more knowledgeable than you on this topic. Deal with it you 12-year-old.

Well it isn't any use. The point is, the machine or method you make the coffee in is by far the least important of those three things. You can get a french press, an aeropress or even just a cheap manual espresso machine. All will provide a much superior coffee than any bean to cup machine because you have a consistent grind of a quality bean. A bean to cup machine cannot provide an espresso under the definition of what an espresso is.

Utter nonsense, a cheap espresso machine does not produce a decent espresso with it's pressurised basket. It will just have a fake crema.

Nothing at all wrong with a bean to cup if it's set up correctly for the beans in use, grinder settings and water volume and temperature.

I'm actually looking for a manual machine, what do you think a twin boiler or a heat exchange system, should I bother with a PID? Where do you draw the line at home...

Not fussed on any Coffee made in a French Press, even the cheapest manual espresso machine or B2C is better than that, aeropress is a toy.

One thing I can't get my head around is that you seem to frequent B2C deals on here but have an axe to grind with them, why are you commenting if it is of no interest to you.

Out of curiosity is it a chain or a independent you work?
